“You don’t have to be perfect. With mental health problems, it’s hard to function at 100% all the time. It’s okay to be at 80%, or 50%, or 20% on some days.
Do your best, but let the past be the past and forgive yourself if you don’t get everything done that you would like.
You can do this. And if there’s some things you can’t, that’s okay. You’re still awesome.”

“One afternoon, Stephen Colbert came in to the office. His show was about to premiere so he hadn’t spent much time in our studio. As he walked past me at my cubicle, he stopped and said, “You’re a new face, what’s your name?” I didn’t know what to really say, so I replied, “Oh, I’m just an intern.”
Colbert looked at me a moment and then said: “Just an intern? Hey, look, everybody starts somewhere. I was just an understudy at one point, but that’s just a point in time. It’s not about where you are now, or even where you hope to go, it’s who you are that matters. I’m Stephen, who are you?” I introduced myself and we shook hands. “Don’t let your place in the world dictate who you are to anyone. We all have the same merit.” Then he was gone, but his words lingered.”

We read that Leonard Nimoy died. Star Trek has meant a lot to us since it first debuted on television, we were seven years old. It’s brought so many of us so much joy and connection.
Leonard Nimoy’s last tweet:
“A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP”
“Daisies of the world unite — you have nothing to lose but your chains.”
“We are mosaics — pieces of light, love, history, stars — glued together with magic and music and words.”
